A LONDON CLUB SCANDAL
THE AFFAIR SUPPRESSED

London, November 9.
A horrible scandal with a private West End club is reported. Ninety eight members in all are implicated. Thirty one warrants have been issued, but will not be executed on the understanding that the persons connected with it leave the United Kingdom. The list of offenders includes future dukes, the sons of dukes, peers, Hebrew financiers, many honorable persons, and several officers of the Imperial Army. All the matter have suddenly resigned their commissions. The offenders have fled. The newspapers have suppressed reference to the scandal, but there is no doubt of its having taken place.
